welcome to quiet reflections.
This space is where I share my thoughts and musings about life that pop into my head as I gaze out of my window (which I do a lot). I write essays and sometimes some prose poems about the world around us and what it looks like and what it all means to me. I also love reading so I write personal responses to the books that touched me in some way too.
Here’s some more about me:
I'm a writer from London who loves Japanese literature and has a worrying addiction to hot chocolate. I have constant neck pain from straining to look for the moon most nights and if you look really closely, I have a little dent on my left pointer finger from the crocheting I do. I take my hobbies very seriously.
I studied English Language and Linguistics and Drama for my BA and the contemporary arts for my MA.
I’ve self-published a poetry collection, been featured in a couple literary mags as well as Thought Catalog, and I also run my own self-discovery magazine called la jaden. I’m currently working on an essay collection.
